As one of the most anticipated events of the year, the 2022 MotoGP is set to be extra special this time around thanks to the fact that it’s being hosted in one of the best areas of the country of Australia. Taking place over the course of three days – from the 14th to the 16th of October – MotoGP fans have been eagerly awaiting the chance to watch some of their favourite riders battle it out on Phillip Island, where it has been a staple of the area since 1997.
Although the MotoGP was cancelled both for 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic and strict lockdowns, it has now returned to Phillip Island, and should prove to be one of the most exciting events of the season.
2022 MotoGP Highlights
Some of the events that will be taking place during this period include:
- Free practice races, such as National Superbikes, Moto2, Moto3, as well as for the MotoGP.
- The qualifying rounds will take place on the 15th of October and will include two separate rounds to see who can move on to the next set of events.
- Spectators will then be able to watch the warm-up rounds, which will be closely followed by the main event, which will be happening on the 16th of October, which is a Sunday. The main event will consist of 27 laps in total.
Who Will Be Racing?
There is a large roster of participants for the 2022 Australian MotoGP, which includes a number of extremely well-known names within the racing sphere. These are some of the riders that fans can expect to be a part of the event in October:
- Marc Marquez
- Jack Miller
- Alex Marquez
- Luca Marini
- Johann Zarco
- Jorge Martin
- Miguel Oliveira
- Pol Espargaro
It’s difficult to predict who might come out the winner at the end, although the standings are currently being led by Fabio Quartararo with 219 Points, followed closely by Francesco Bagnaia of the Ducati Lenovo team with a score of 201. Aleix Esparagaro of Aprilia Racing comes in third with 194 points. There’s a good chance that one of these three may finish in the number one spot by the end of the event, and bettors will want to keep a close eye on these riders as they fight it out for the grand victory on Phillip Island.
There is still time to check out all the various betting options that are on offer for the upcoming Australian MotoGP.
